<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>DOM History.forward() Method</title>
        h1 {
            color: green;
    <h2>DOM History.forward( ) Method</h2>
        For going to the next URL in the history
        double-click the "Go next" button:
    <button ondblclick="history_forward()">
        Go next
        function history_forward() {
